    Today I felt a bit tired but did not think much about it. Got to the gym and warmed up, feeling a bit extra stiff so I spent extra time stretching and such. As I was going to do my first Snatch, I realized my shoulders were so fried from yesterday's training I could not even hold the barbell above my head properly without hurting. Realizing that continuing at this point would lead to injury, I stopped it all and went home. Just one of those days.

    Did not have time for anything else but arms today. Went to my old gym and hit Triceps and Biceps and it felt just dumb. No Olympic lifting, not feeling completely exhausted simply felt awkward. Completely fallen in love with Crossfit and I think my body is better off for it.

    Got to the box this morning pumped as ****. What happened? I hurt my shoulder ;-( The irony. Maybe this is the year where we will test to see how dedicated I really am. Not even doing that heavy of weights but will train everything I can without using the shoulders and lifting objects straight up. Just irritating but time to show resolve!

    Back in the old Snap Fitness gym this late afternoon only doing old chest exercises. No problem doing that as there is no vertical load on the shoulders. Pushed until the chest felt dead!!! Good overall feeling.

    Nutrition update:

    I find it interesting that in my ever ending quest for the perfect diet to cut fat I forgot about the big picture. As I have started doing CrossFit, which by pure intensity and volume creates a massive workload I am starting to lean out even though I am eating as much as I possibly can. I simply can not eat more food at this point! Years of being anal about grams left and right and being hungry feels like something I could have spared myself. Will this get me to stage condition, no way, but I am leaning out day by day to a place where anyone, including people on these forums, would say I am looking damn good. Not there yet but once I am you can be damn sure I am putting up a picture :-)

    I concur with what your logic is. If one is working hard, the body will find ways to improve/change. I always find when I work harder, everything else seems to fall into place.

    Are you on any compounds at the moment?

    Keep up the hard work and stay injury free!

    Not on TRT but this is my current cruising dosage. I just keep checking my blood values to make sure I am Ok. Will use Testosterone Propionate and Oxandrolone this blast as Tren -A do not agree with me, or my wife :-)

    Been running HGH since November last year, no clue if it has helped.

    I think youve hit the nail on the head there. We can all pick and play with our diets to infinity and back. But simply the diet close and working your ass off would give much better results.

    As you say, you wouldnt win Olympia with that method, but for the rest of us. I think you're right, too much planning, not enough doing! I am certainly guilty of this.

    One of the things that the therapist told me was contributing to my previous injury was a weak bicep muscle making the strength uneven. Went in today for a Bicep and Tricep workout. Except for it feeling weird to only train that and no crazy HIIT at the same time, I did it a bit differently. I exhausted the Bicep to the point where I could not lift a 2kg dumbbell and after that went onto Triceps. This to make sure I will be giving my Biceps the correct attention. Technically an off day from training today but that's not for me and Sundays are off anyways. Two more days and then rest.

    Interesting

    I think Marcus and them have some pretty brutal Arm routines posted in there. Dorian Yates has an arm video (at least I think in the blood and gut series), may want to give a look to prepare for next week's workout

    Yeah the Dorian videos are great, and the whole Blood&Guts routine is a fantastic all rounder. There isnt a dedicated arm day, its built into the Back and Chest days. But you can certainly watch and remove the principles in your own way.

    I always find heavy, into drop sets and partials is the way for arms. Particularly with the cable machines!

    The city was pretty much in lockdown during the previous Saturday due to the statewide bandh (http://goo.gl/iMyCF8) making it hard to get training in. I can still feel the body getting used to this training and considering this is almost a 2-year project I see no reason to rush anything anyhow.

    STRENGTH (WEEK 3/DAY1):
    1) Back squat: 65%x 8 reps 100kg, 70%x 8 reps 105kg, 80%x 6 reps 120kg, 85%x 6 reps 130kg.
    *Rest 10 minutes, then:
    2) Front squat: 60%x 5 reps 70kg, 70%x 5 reps 75kg, 75%x 5 reps 80kg, 80%x 5 reps 85kg.

    Core:

    3 rounds, not for time:
    -5x Eccentric toes to bar (Perform a T2B and on the way down, take at least 5 seconds to hit full extension again)
    -2 minute side plank, 60sec R/60sec L
    -10x KB windmill + press, 5R/5L (AHAP)
    -10x banded back extensions (Use heaviest band as possible)


    Conditioning (Week 2/day1):
    Complete 2 rounds of:
    -5,000m row (Must keep above a 2:24-2:28/500m pace)
    -Rest 3 minutes

    -Odd: 2x Heaving snatch balance (work up to a max double in the 5 sets)
    -Even: max rep strict handstand push-up
    *If you think you can get more than 10 reps on each set, then start with a 4″/2″ deficit.

    Work Capacity:
    “Climbing Snail”…modified: Complete 3 rounds for time of:
    -Run 400m
    -2x rope climb (15ft)

    Chest Dips
    Pec-Deck

    STRENGTH (WEEK 3/DAY2):
    1) Back squat: 60%x 10 reps 90kg, 65%x 10 reps 98kg, 70%x 8 reps 105kg, 75%x 8 reps 113kg. This felt easy today!
    *Rest 10 minutes, then:
    2) Front squat: 60%x 5 reps 75kg, 65%x 5 reps 80kg, 70%x 5 reps x 2 sets 85kg & 90kg.

    Core:
    Complete the following for max reps:

    Today is a rest day but squeezed in a quick benchmark workout and set a new PR. Closing in on a decent time on this one. Some people on Youtube finishing this one in 12-14 minutes seems pretty insane but the current, and reasonable goal, is to get under 20 minutes and go from there.

    Filthy 50

    For time:
    50 Box jump, 24-inch box
    50 Jumping pull-ups
    50 Kettlebell swings, 1 pood
    50 steps, Walking Lunge
    50 Knees to elbows
    50 Push press, 45 pounds
    50 Back extensions
    50 Wall ball shots, 20-pound ball
    50 Burpees
    100 Double unders

    Time:
    25.03

    Not a good workout today. Body felt off and generally tired. From experience, I know this is when one is most likely to incur injury so I took it very slow and with low weights.

    STRENGTH:
    1: Clean complex: 10 rounds- Every 2:30 minutes, complete:
    -1x Clean halting deadlift + 1x clean pull + 1x clean (Work up to a max 1+1+1 for the day)
    *For the first rep, it is a deadlift to the hang/launch position with a 2-second pause, then back to the floor, reset and perform a clean pull, back to the floor, reset and the third movement is a full clean.

    2: 5 rounds, every 90 seconds, complete:
    A: 3x strict press (Work up to a max effort 3 RM)
    B: 3x push press (Work up to a max effort 3 RM)
    C: 3x push jerk (Work up to a max effort 3 RM)

    -Explanation: You have a maximum of 5 sets to establish a 3RM press. Once you hit failure, with the clock still running, move onto portion B. Same protocol, in 5 sets or less, work up to a 3 rep max push press, and once you fail at push press, re-rack, add weight and finish off with a 3 rep max push jerk. The weight progression should be linear, and 5 rounds are not required in each of the 3 movements but don’t exceed it. If you know your overhead movements pretty well, you should be able to get away with a total 7 or less total rounds for all 3 of the movements.

    Work Capacity:
    “Elizabeth” – Complete 21-15-9 reps for time of:
    -Squat clean @ 135#, I used 67.5#
    -Dips

    Another slow day. Body felt completely off and I need a day of complete rest. Played through this today when I told myself I really should have rested. Oh well, keep plugging away. Clocked in at 190 lb (86kg) for the first time in a while and still maintaining acceptable levels of body fat. I attribute this to my Crossfit routine entirely.

    Strength:
    1: Snatch Barbell Cycling: 4 minutes of:
    -Position work with an empty barbell.
    2: Muscle snatch: In 10 minutes or less, work up to a 2 rep max muscle snatch
    3: Skill transfer complex: 10 rounds – every 90 seconds, complete:
    -1x Heaving snatch balance + 1x snatch balance (Work up to a 1+1 for the day)

    Back to normal after a day of complete rest. Repping at 130kg (~290 lb) now at back squats and front squats are coming along as well but not close to that weight but at 90kg. Been increasing this one with 5kg each time I am doing it to make sure my form is Ok and should hit 100 during my next round as it is not weight holding me back but form. Overall a good day but a bit light on the cardio side!

    STRENGTH (WEEK 4/DAY1):
    1) Back squat: 65%x 8 reps 100kg, 70%x 8 reps 105kg, 80%x 6 reps 120kg, 85%x 6 reps 130kg.
    *Rest 10 minutes, then:
    2) Front squat: 70%x 5 reps 75kg, 75%x 5 reps 80kg, 80%x 5 reps 85kg, 85%x 5 reps 90kg.

    Core:
    3 rounds, not for time:
    -20x Medball GHD sit ups (20#/14#)
    -60-second L-sit hold
    -10x standing Russian twist, 10R/10L (AHAP)
    -10x Glute ham raise

    Watching the pro's at the Olympics have given some good ideas on how to warm-up well so I tried some of that today for fun. Also, watching those guys you realize you are thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of reps behind in training i.e. Snatch :-) Makes me feel better at sucking at that movement! Clean's were improved today as I am getting my arm's to move more fluidly I think.

    STRENGTH:

    1: Block clean: 10 rounds- Every 2 minutes, complete:
    -2x squat clean from the blocks + 1x split jerk (1″ below the knee and work up to a max 2+1 for the day)
    2: 5 rounds – Every 3 minutes, complete
    -5x clean pull superset with max rep strict weighted dip (AHAP. Shoot for failure around 7-10 rep range)
    -Start at weight you ended at from the blocks*
    *If you think you can get more than 10 reps on each set, then start with a 4″/2″ deficit.

    Work Capacity:
    Complete the follow for time:
    -40-30-20-10 reps : Wallball (20#/14#)
    -20-15-10-5: Strict pull ups
    Time: ~9.30

    Hit a Boot Camp for the Police force again this morning. Ran a few Air squat and Jumping Jack Tabata's and planking. After this, a bunch of stuff went down so I only had time for my leg session and missed cardio and arms. Not much to do about that except make it up tomorrow.

    STRENGTH (WEEK 4/DAY2):
    1) Back squat: 65%x 8 reps 100kg, 70%x 8 reps 110kg, 75%x 8 reps 115kg, 80%x 8 reps 125kg
    *Rest 10 minutes, then:
    2) Front squat: 60%x 5 reps 80kg, 65%x 5 reps 85kg, 70%x 5 reps x 2 sets 90kg & 95kg (dropped weight on floor @ 4th rep).

    As my PT specialist told me I am focusing on Biceps once per week. Went to the old gym and did arms and then hit CrossFit for a WOD.

    Strenght:
    Biceps and Triceps

    WOD:
    10*200m Sprint, one run every 2min
    Rest 3min
    4 rounds for time:
    24 KB Snatch used a 12kg KB which was way to light
    12 Pushups
    96 Single-unders
